Maurice's Hi-Tech Automotive Services
"I own a 2007 Chevy Trail Blazer and in November for no apparent reason the Valve Spring broke on the top of the engine. I took the car to a repair shop and they did not have the ability to repair my car. They totally disassembled my car and then told me it would be too much work, not to mention they did not have the proper tools to do the repair in the first place... I called my sister and she said "" get your car from there now, and tow it to Maurice's shop"". I called Maurice' shop and was amazed that he w as open at 7:30 am. I explained to him what my issue was and he was professional , calm and said "" I can fix it"". I had been praying that I would find the right man to fix my engine and was so happy. Other shops I called earlier would not touch my car saying they had never done a repair like this because it was extensive work requiring removal of the the entire engine...Apparently, they were afraid of the work that would be involved. To make a long story short, Maurice Fixed my Valve Spring in one day, also he did not have to take the entire engine out of the car. I recommend Maurice' s shop to anyone that has a engine problem and want to be treated fair and honestly."

8 Mile Auto Repair
Reply to your scam...you brought your in a 2007 trailblazer for repairs under your warrant...your warranty company wanted to inspect your failures due to the dollar amount involved, your truck was inspected and a report sent to warranty, but someone "drove your truck" from its parked spot...Ther is absolutely no way for a 2007 trailblazer to be stolen without keys unless it is towed off...Detroit required the owner of the vehicle to file report, we sent someone to make a statement on the report you filed...what you were refused were the keys and you were told that you could view the camera...your warranty claim had to be canceled which the shop would have made money from, far more than what a stolen truck could possibly have been sold for. Your financing was through Credit Acceptance and they also use this tactic to repossess cars, I know this because we install the units that track there cars...if the unit was not active the call to the warranty which is owned by them would have told them where the truck was

Ryan's Pick-A-Part Used Auto Parts
people here are great large selection of parts better organized than any other yard I've ever been in $2 charge for admission to the yard sucks butI guess that just keeps people from just wondering in when they want other than that the staff is more than helpful cheerful and a general delight to work with will answer most questions if possible their inventory registration by make model year is an aid in finding the parts for most any vehicle the only complaint I would have is that the trunk and back door hatches are not opened to make it possible to retrieve tail like or other objects associated with that area prices are reasonable but you must have your own tools to remove parts yourself or if you're not capable of doing this they offer a service to remove it for a price a keep up the good work guys and gals see you soon keep safe god bless

Michigan Motor Exchange
I just had Michigan Motor Exchange put a remanufactured engine into my 1998 Bravada. So far everything is running great. No one including myself wants to spend money on an older SUV but it turns out that it was cheaper than buying a new or used car with higher miles. So, for a few thousand bucks, I have a SUV that my 16 year old can drive. Looks good and runs great. David was very helpful in the process and straight forward about the costs. He gave me a competitive quote for the engine and after evaluating what else the truck needed...It was my decision....no pressure. It made sense to invest a bit more to address other non-engine related issues. I had my truck back in just over a week. I was referred to Michigan Motor Exchange by another automotive shop. I was very happy with my experience.

Michigan Motor Exchange
I took my 2004 Durango into Michigan Motor Exchange two months ago and had them replace my engine. My experience with them was very positive from the start. They were very thorough in explaining everything that needed to be done and told me at that time I might need some additional parts after diagnosing the problem. They called me to ok everything and explained that these were preventative maintenance items. It has been two months now and I have 1200 miles on the engine and everything is running smoothly. I did have a check engine light come on so called them immediately and went back in to have them check it out. It ended up being nothing and they cleared the code for me.I would highly recommend Michigan Motor Exchange and I would not hesitate to go back to them for future business.

Unique Auto Care
Went to Unique Auto Care for the first time, and will never go elsewhere from now on for any other car services I need in the future. I got a car starter installed for my Honda CRV. Although, I didn't make an appointment and they were very busy when I got there, they accommodated their schedule to get the starter installed. It barely took an hour, and they have a nice, spacious waiting area for customers. They were very quick, efficient, and gave me the best quote in town. A very friendly and knowledgeable staff who makes it evident that customer satisfaction is their priority! They made sure I understood how to use the remote starter by demonstrating how it works, and answered any questions I had. I Highly recommend UAC to everyone for all their car needs.

Being new to town and, let's say, less that adept at auto mechanics, I panicked a little when my engine light came on and the need for a mechanic arose. After scouring online reviews for the best auto repair in Detroit, I ventured to Maurice's. Most mechanics and retailers in general would have tried to sell me as many products and services as possible to meet quota, not necessarily customer need. What happened, however, was quite the opposite. Maurice gave me a free diagnostic, informed me of my car's issues, and that they were in fact not urgent in nature. All he asked was that I return if this or any other issues arose again and, for this courtesy, I can honestly say I have and will continue to do so.

L.I.J.B.S. Towing
My vehicle was stolen in Detroit and when it was found it was recovered at LIJBS. When I went down to LIJBS to see my vehicle, the staff was very pleasant, polite, helpful, considerate, trust worthy, and respectful. The staff at LIJBS was very patient and took the time to walk me through the process that was next to handle with my insurance. I am forever grateful for this tow company and would definitely use them again for any of my tow needs. This tow company also was very professional, clean, organized, and not to mention their beautiful state of the art equipment. I was just completely ecstatic and would definitely recommend. This company was truly a blessing to me and my family.

University Auto Care
I used to get diagnostic work done at Firestone for thoroughness, and then take it to a cheaper place for the work itself. Now I just go to University Auto, where they do the work right, and at a very reasonable price. Where Firestone wanted $650 for a big exhaust issue, University Auto got it done properly for about $200. Since then, it's the only place I go. There is a 20% off for new customers, so give that a shot. The guy who works the front desk, Ya Ya, is a real gem who takes pride in getting you in and out and served well. I'm really sorry for the people who had a bad experience. Again, I'm really surprised. Maybe Ya Ya is what has made the difference for me.

Unique Auto Care
A shop you can trustMy friend has been taking his cars to Gus (the owner) for over 6 yrs. He recommended Unique auto care to me because I was taking my car to a mechanic that recently retired. I met Gus, a very nice and trustful man, a year ago and been going there since. I trust Gus because he does not and will not do repairs unless you absolutely needed to. He or his sons will never push to make a sale; they always make an honest recommendation and a time line on when the next things should be replaced. This is the place to go for your mechanical repairs. I always felt like family when am there. I give Unique auto care my highest recommendation.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
